Jack Wright, saxophonist and author of The Free Musics, brings guitarist Zachary Darrup to London to play with the AMM All-Stars (Paul Shearsmith - trumpet, Baliphone, squeakers; Dave Black - electric guitar; Len Massey - Theremin; OTL - mouthnoise, piano, soundfiles; Peter Baxter - drums) on Ben Watson's Resonance FM radio hour Late Lunch With Out To Lunch. This was a warm-up for a gig at Cafe Oto the next day, and occurred on 13-ix-2017. Soundfiles were from a summer holiday trip to Germany, and included Iris and Mordecai playing wooden flutes in Horb am Neckar; the fountain in the Schlossplatz in Stuttgart; Karin Stelzer on railway politics; and cowbells in the Vogtsbauernhof in the Schwarzwald. Speed listeners will be able to hear OTL reading Rosemary Sutcliff's Sword at Sunset (1963) pp. 165-6. Studio set-up and live mix: Erik Lintunen.
